Six words have had their astronomical terms removed. The astronomical terms have been placed into Group A. The remaining letters of each word have been placed into Group B. Your task is to reconstitute the words by merging each astronomical term with the proper set of letters. Other than merging the two groups together, there is no rearranging of the letters. Example: sand + pne = spanned (SpANneD).

Group A: comet, moon, nova, orbit, star, sun
Group B: egosu, islble, ojor, onty, sic, vee


Answer

comet + sic = cosmetic (COsMETic)
moon + onty = monotony (MonOtONy)
nova + islble = insolvable (iNsOlVAble)
orbit + vee = overbite (OveRBITe)
star + egosu = stegosaur (STegosAuR)
sun + ojor = sojourn (SojoUrN)
